It was included in later hymnals, including: In , Gustav Holst adapted the music from a section of Jupiter from his suite The Planets to create a setting for the poem.
The music was extended slightly to fit the final two lines of the first verse. At the request of the publisher Curwen, Holst made a version as a unison song with orchestra Curwen also published Sir Hubert Parry 's unison song with orchestra, " Jerusalem ".

What is Kobo Super Points?
The editor of the new edition of Songs of Praise was Holst's close friend Ralph Vaughan Williams , which may have provided the stimulus for Holst's co-operation in producing the hymn. Holst's daughter Imogen recorded that, at "the time when he was asked to set these words to music, Holst was so over-worked and over-weary that he felt relieved to discover they 'fitted' the tune from Jupiter ". The hymn as printed in Songs of Praise consisted only of the two verses of the version, credited "Words: Cecil Spring-Rice, ; Music: I vow to thee, my country, all earthly things above, Entire and whole and perfect, the service of my love; The love that asks no question, the love that stands the test, That lays upon the altar the dearest and the best; The love that never falters, the love that pays the price, The love that makes undaunted the final sacrifice.
And there's another country, I've heard of long ago, Most dear to them that love her, most great to them that know; We may not count her armies, we may not see her King; Her fortress is a faithful heart, her pride is suffering; And soul by soul and silently her shining bounds increase, And her ways are ways of gentleness, and all her paths are peace. The final line of the second verse is based on Proverbs 3: I heard my country calling, away across the sea, Across the waste of waters, she calls and calls to me. Her sword is girded at her side, her helmet on her head, And around her feet are lying the dying and the dead; I hear the noise of battle, the thunder of her guns; I haste to thee, my mother, a son among thy sons.
